Abe Lincoln at the NAFC Public Library - October 16th
On Thursday October 16, 2014 from 7:00-8:00 pm at the New Albany-Floyd County Public Library in downtown New Albany, Indiana, Larry Elliott will portray Abraham Lincoln, in the Library’s Strassweg Auditorium. During his presentation at the NA-FC Public Library, Elliott’s portrayal of Abraham Lincoln will include a story about a trip he took down the Ohio River on a steamboat, to tie in with steamboat the Belle of Louisville’s 100th birthday celebration October 14-19, 2014. This program is free and open to the public.
Abraham Lincoln was born in Hodgenville, KY, and presenter Larry Elliott's family is from there as well. In 2003 he entered a Lincoln look-a-like contest in Hodgenville and began reading about this great man. After an extensive study of his life, Elliott decided to purchase a complete period-correct Abraham Lincoln costume and began portraying him. In 2005, he learned, remarkably, that his great, great, great, grandmother (Mary LaRue Enlow) was the midwife who helped deliver Abraham Lincoln. Elliott portrays Mr. Lincoln in the first person, from his humble roots in Kentucky, to growing up in Indiana, to becoming a self-taught lawyer in Illinois, to becoming our sixteenth President who preserved the Union and freed the slaves, to his untimely death at Ford’s Theatre. Larry Elliott and his wife Mary (who often portrays Mary Todd Lincoln to Larry's Abraham Lincoln) live in Louisville, KY. They are both members of the Association of Lincoln Presenters.
